Personal #

  1. Construction is going on in our house now in order to list to sell.
  2. Talked to my therapist about constantly feeling misunderstood.
  3. Took Em out for dinner at Vernick Fish for one last hoorah before Philly restaurants shut down again due to COVID restrictions.
  4. Twitter released Fleets this week. I thought I didn’t like the Story format, but I’m realizing it’s because they didn’t fit my usage of other social media. I use Facebook and Instagram for friends and family only, and I’m much more guarded about the content I share there. But, I use Twitter more casually as well as professionally and have a lot more to share via that platform. I could see myself using Fleets a lot.
  5. Our new pool inspection came back horrible. Lots of expensive work to do 😞
  6. The Sixers picked up Seth Curry, Dwight Howard, Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, Tyrese Maxey, Isiah Joe, and Paul Reed and got rid of Al Horford and Josh Richardson. I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS SEASON.
  7. Slept an average of 6 hours and 22 minutes per night. Average time in bed: 7 hours and 21 minutes. Average bedtime: 9:46pm. Average wake up time: 4:42am.
